Giveaway ~ Bosch PSR 1800li-2 Cordless Drill for the Handyman Dad : Perfect for Fathers Day

 DIY Giveaway thanks to Bosch & Bunnings Warehouse

When my boys were littler minions , any time anything broke - they would say 'Daddy can fix it' - even a broken glass or a window ...with his drill. Much like Bob the Builder who can forget ?

Can we fix it
Yes, we can
Bob the Builder
Can we fix it
Bob the Builder
Yes, we can

Daddy was a handyman and always doing something around our home , usually just before we put it on the market for sale ...that's another story.

You know how all the 'kids toys' these days have screwed up battery compartments - the frustration of waiting till daddy got home drove me them crazy. We probably had a normal screwdriver somewhere but they didn't need to know that.

A trip to Bunnings Warehouse , even without the play equipment or jumping castle/sausage sizzle is a highlight of the day.

I went recently to buy some storage containers and my boy dragged to me to the power tools aisle to check out what we could buy Dad [his] for Fathers Day.

'Dad' has lots of tools and he is the sharpest tool in our shed, there is always room for more POWER tools, as he tells me.

I was offered a Bosch PSR 1800li-2 Cordless Drill to review and one to giveaway ! I couldn't refuse an offer like that. I might get my little pink cordless drill back now.

Though I wanted to surprise him, I had to ask his opinion. The minions need not know , that Dad has seen his surprise new toy  tool!

Hubby was impressed with some of the many features .

  • Long life of the changeable lithium-ion battery pack
  • 20 pre-selectable torque settings plus a drill setting – optimum power for every application
  •  3-stage charge FUEL -battery level indicator
  • Bosch Electronic speed control: “accelerate” from 0 – max. using the trigger switch
  • Keyless chuck with Bosch Auto-Lock for the fastest and easiest bit changes
  • PowerLight – thanks to the built-in LED
  • Forward/reverse indicator lights 
  • Flat bottom battery so stands up by itself

If my boys had the chance they would buy Dad more tools and big boy toys like these
